Police are appealing for witnesses after a daytime burglary at Bell Street, Newsome, Huddersfield.

Three men were at the property at 1 pm on June 5 and arrived in a mucky looking white van with “Walkers” written on the side in black writing. There were aluminium ladders on the roof.

On arrival they told the complainant he required work doing on his roof.

At the same time it is alleged one man went into the house and stole a substantial amount of cash. The men then made off from the property in an unknown direction.

The first man is described as well built, around 5’10” tall and with short dark hair. He had a round face with a bit of stubble on it and was aged in his late 30s. He was wearing a blue coloured casual jacket which was worn open as well as dark coloured trousers and dark coloured gloves. He spoke with a Yorkshire accent.

The second man is 5’10” of slim build and clean shaven with short dark coloured hair. He was aged 20 to 30 and also spoke with a Yorkshire accent.

The third man is 5’4” to 5’5” tall, of slim build with thick looking light brown hair and aged about 20. All three men are white.

Any witnesses or anyone who can identify the three men are asked to contact PC Chris Birkenshaw at Huddersfield CID on 101.
